All of DeKalb Eye Consultants’ physicians and surgeons are experienced, board-certified and fellowship-trained, and have been practicing at Hauser-Ross since 2011.

“The transition of Hauser-Ross to DeKalb Eye Consultants allows ophthalmology services in the community to continue to grow, having specialists dedicated to the field at the helm, exploring new technologies and bringing the latest innovation to the practice,” Joe Dant, vice president of business development at KishHealth System, said in the release.

DeKalb Eye Consultants will continue to practice and do business under the name Hauser-Ross Eye Institute.
